Lance Bass admitted several years back that his N’Sync lady-loving days were a bit of a sham cos he actually prefers the peen. Fair enough, good for him and we also kinda figured it was between him and the one with the weird dreadlocks. Anyway, now he’s sounding off on the latest boy band craze One Direction, saying pretty much what we all know: one of them is probably gay, too!
From The Rubin Report (via DS):
Referring to NBA star Jason Collins recently coming out, host Dave Rubin said: “There is one other place where coming out, I feel, would be frowned upon and I think it’s from the world you came from – the boyband situation.
“If you took one of those One Direction kids, because they basically are kids, my guess is one of them is gay.”
Bass replied: “Well, statistically speaking, one probably is. It’s crazy with a market like that because 100% is young women.
“And they fantasise about these guys, and then you have the record label and everyone grooming you to make sure that you don’t even mention you have a girlfriend.
“So screw the fact that you’re gonna come out as being gay. It ruins their whole business plan.”
True that. Although I know there’ve been a few boybands in the UK with openly gay members – Boyzone and Union J immediately come to mind – but unfortunately, Lance is right. Though really, wouldn’t a gay boyband singer make him more attractive to the young gay male fans? Seems like they could make up for their “loss” there. Also, why does it matter who ANYONE sleeps with in their private lives? Having sex with men or women doesn’t change the way your music sounds, the last time I checked.
